Rsk holds not to vaccinate.

 but he follows the רמב"ם diet so if you follow that diet you'll be fine without it otherwise I would recommend vaccinating

There is a popular seven (plus?) volumes, ongoing series of seforim titled "kovetz halachos" with his pesakim.

Welcome to Just Shmooze, where the topics don't matter. That's right, the topics are just like flights to Cleveland.

Are your kids vaccinated?
Eight out of nine
Eta: I said I am not a talmid

I have actually been reading about this on that meshugener eidensons blog (he is not as crazy as his brother) and he has been predicting for weeks that there would be a מחאה and I didnt believe him.  I was very surprised to see the letter from Rav ahron Feldman on מו״ש

I'm not surprised at all, to the contrary i'd be shocked if there wasn't
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Yeah, but not someone most poskim will rely on for such a complex case. it's above his pay grade.

LOL

The midgets casting aspersions on the giants.

I don't think any objective, sane, and rational person disagrees with the notion that Rav Nota Greenblatt is one of--if not the--world's foremost experts in inyanei gittin. Period. Full stop.

To clarify, I'm sure that if it turns out that RSK was indeed involved in this heter, he was more than qualified to be.
It is still not confirmed at all either way that he actually issued a pesak here.

This is the strongest reaction so far. https://www.scribd.com/doc/284995017/Rav-Gestetner-Letter-Condemming-Tamar-Epsteins-Marriage?secret_password=qJcXzCWpQFKPRft2pdjb




Isn't this the BD that had already "sided" with the husband and asked RSK to stay out of it?  If so, I take it with a grain of salt at this point.

I never heard of him even though I grew up in Monsey. Is he considered to be a boki in these subjects? The way he goes after RNG and RSK personally calling them reform makes me think that kol haposel bimumo posel
